I would like to learn more about how to become a dietitian

To become a dietitian, you need the following education and training experience:
  1. You will need to complete a degree in human nutrition and dietetics from a university program that has been accredited by the Partnership for Dietetic Education and Practice (PDEP). 
  2. You will need to complete supervised practical training, which can happen either during your education, or after graduation as part of a post-graduate practicum program. Learn more about the different programs and their requirements here.
  3. Once you complete your degree and practical training, in most provinces you have to write the Canadian Dietetic Registration Examination (CDRE) managed by the regulatory College in each province. Find out more information here.
